Federal Home Loan Bank of New York Declares a 6.25% Dividend for the Third Quarter of 2006

I am pleased to report that our Board of Directors has approved a dividend rate for the third quarter of 2006 of 6.25% (annualized). The dividend will be distributed to member financial institutions on October 31, 2006. The Federal Home Loan Bank of New York’s dividend rate for the second quarter, paid in July of 2006, was 5.75%. The dollar amount distributed for the third quarter dividend will be approximately $61 million.

This third quarter dividend of 6.25% represents a fair return on our members’ investment in the Federal Home Loan Bank of New York and reflects our low-risk profile and conservative investment strategy. It represents a payout of 80% of net income for the quarter. Retained earnings after the dividend payment will be approximately $289 million. If the FHFB proposed retained earnings regulation were in effect for the third quarter, the Home Loan Bank would be in compliance.

Future dividend rates may be significantly different from the current rate as a result of a number of factors, including the effects of derivatives accounting (SFAS 133), overall interest rates, demand for our products, and our ability to achieve targeted returns on our investments. In addition, payment of a dividend remains within the discretion of the Bank’s Board of Directors and subject to certain regulatory requirements. Additional financial and other disclosures may be found on the SEC website at
